Surgical Retractors Market Trends

  • Increasing Number Of Surgical Procedures to Fuel Market Growth

An increase in surgical procedures is expected to support market growth during the forecast period. A surgical procedure is a medical procedure that involves instrumental incisions, usually performed in an operating room, and usually includes anesthesia and respiratory support. Different surgical interventions include cesarean section, cataract surgery, breast biopsy, bariatric surgery, etc. Hence, the increasing prevalence of cancer in the population is expected to increase the number of surgeries performed, which is expected to boost the market CAGR during the forecast period.

Additionally, the number of surgeries due to chronic conditions such as trauma, hip and knee replacements, and cardiovascular diseases requiring surgery is also increasing. This is the major growth factor for the surgical retractor market. A study published in June 2021 in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery found that 92,809 surgeries were classically classified as cardiac surgeries, of which 29,444 were isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries and 35,469 were isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries. The case was isolated heart valve surgery. The number of isolated heart transplants increased by 2% to 340 in 2020. Therefore, the high number of cardiac interventions and surgeries performed is expected to spur the growth of the surgical retractors market revenue over the forecast period.

Several research teams have focused on using 3D printing for manufacturing surgical retractors successfully. This will enable deployed medical staff to create a wide range of medical devices on demand, regardless of location. For instance, in August 2021, the first trial laparotomy was performed using the new TITAN CSR. It is a lightweight titanium surgical retractor for trauma and emergency procedures. It offers the speed of traditional self-retaining retractors and the exposure of a table-mounted system that does not require a post or table component.

Common retractors include abdominal, digital, neurological, orthopedic, rectal, thoracic, and ribbon retractors. Hence, rising design options for Surgical Retractors positively impact the market growth.

Surgical Retractors Design Insights

The surgical retractors market data based on the design includes fixed or flat frame retractors. The fixed or flat frame retractors surgical retractors segments held the majority share in 2022 with respect to the surgical retractors market revenue. This is due to blade-elevated tip retractors' improved traction and strong grip.

Surgical Retractors Product Usage Insights

Based on product usage, the surgical retractors market segmentation includes tissue handling and dissection. The tissue-handling Surgical Retractors segment held the majority share in 2022 with respect to the Surgical Retractors market revenue. This is attributed to the increased handling of tissues, organs, and ligaments around the surgical area with the increasing number of surgical procedures globally.
